Here at Executive Elements, we like to feature fantastic women we think you should know. Some of these women are clients, some are friends, some are women we’ve only just met. But they all have this in common: they are dynamic, interesting women who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.

My Favorite Quote:
“Today me will live in the moment unless it’s unpleasant in which case me will eat a cookie.”
Being present and living in the moment is something many of us strive for in life. But we all know life can happen and one must extend grace to one’s self!
My advice to Young Women:
We all get derailed or off course. The ability to get back on course is when true growth happens as a person.
How I Balance it All:
Self Journal: Set Targets/Priorities for the day, block time for every detail and extend my gratitude.
